Step 2 Placement
Safety Precautions
Professional installation is required.
The installation should never be done by any other than a qualified installation specialist.
PANASONIC DISCLAIMS ANY PROPERTY DAMAGE AND/OR SERIOUS INJURY, INCLUDING
DEATH RESULTING FROM IMPROPER INSTALLATION OR INCORRECT HANDLING.
≥ Be sure to install the main unit as indicated within this operating Instructions.
≥ Attach using techniques suited to the structure and materials of the installation location.
Caution
≥ This system is to be used only as indicated in these instructions. Failure to do so may lead to
damage to the amplifier and/or the speaker, and may result in the risk of fire. Consult a qualified
service person if damage has occurred or if you experience a sudden change in performance.
≥ Do not attempt to attach the main unit to a wall using methods other than those described in this
manual.
≥ Do not hold the main unit in one hand to avoid injury, you may drop the main unit when carrying it.
≥ To prevent damage or scratches, lay down a soft cloth and perform the assembly on it.

Selecting the placement method
Choose a placement method that suits you best.
≥ Place the main unit on a flat
and horizontal surface.
≥ Place the main unit in front of
the TV pedestal.
Precautions
When placing the main unit
on a rack or on a table
Page 14
When attaching the main
unit to a wall
≥ Place the main unit on a
flat and vertical surface.
∫ When placing the main unit in front of the TV
The main unit may block or interfere with the TV’s various sensors (C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic
Tracking System) sensor, remote control sensor, etc.) and the 3D Eyewear transmitters on a 3D
compatible TV.
≥If interference occurs, move the main unit further away from the TV. If the TV still does not function
correctly, try using it in a rack or in the wall mount position.
∫ If the TV’s remote control sensor is blocked by the main unit
Try using the TV’s remote control from a different angle.
≥ Place the subwoofer within a few meters of the main unit and in a horizontal position with the top panel facing upward.
≥ Do not use the main unit or the subwoofer in a metal cabinet.
≥ Placing the subwoofer too close to the walls and corners can result in excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with
thick curtains.
≥ If irregular colouring occurs on your TV, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes. If it persists, move the main unit and
subwoofer further away from the TV.
≥ Keep magnetised items away. Magnetised cards, watches, etc., can be damaged if placed too close to the main unit
and subwoofer.
≥ Keep the main unit approximately 150 mm away from the TV.
